Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1004 AM EDT Friday, August 28, 2015 

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure over the Ohio Valley will keep conditions dry today. By 
Saturday morning, a system moving through the Great Lakes will spawn some 
scattered showers and thunderstorms, though nothing significant is expected. 
Shower activity may linger across the eastern basin early next week, 
otherwise another ridge of high pressure will build into the region bringing
a prolonged stretch of dry weather with above normal temperatures. 

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
Virtually dry. Only a few isolated showers fell in northeastern Ohio and 
northwestern Pennsylvania late Thursday morning. 

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall coverage will gradually increase over the next 48 hours as the 
approaching weather system moves into the area. Rain is expected over much
of the Ohio Valley, though little, if any, rain is expected up the middle of
the basin, in the vicinity of the Ohio River. All basin average amounts are
forecast to be less than 0.50 inch.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.

Forecast precipitation graphics are available on the OHRFC Website
